Nicholas Oughton of Griffith University in Queensland, Australia, recently conducted a study of top film schools around the world in an endeavor to reveal why many universities continue to teach film acquisition, and wish to continue doing so long into the future. His report will be presented at the CILECT Conference in Argentina in September, where representatives from film schools worldwide gather to discuss the future of film school education.
Oughton set out to find answers to a series of questions, including how many film schools currently teach on film globally; why they teach on celluloid; how long they plan to continue their current formats; why some may have stopped; and what their thoughts are on what the future may hold, in addition to other information.

"Cinematography is all about storytelling. All the way, 100%. If telling a story is your one true goal as cinematographer, everything else will follow. The light and glass and stock one uses are only means to an end, which should be a story worth telling."
